Iraqi Intifada: Shia and Sunni Unite

Al-Sadr has 5 to 7 million supporters. [P]eople feel that their personality, history and culture are being attacked.

And the thing happening in Iraq right now, killing hundreds of Iraqis and dozens of coalition soldiers, is NOT just another mob. It is an uprising." -Raed in the Middle
